It made folks around the world wish that they were really there

Recorded songs in Bristol Tennessee

Nashville was the heart of country music
In the Great Depression and World War II
Movies fell in love with singing cowboys
Roy Acuff, Texas Swing, the Opry too

Kentucky bluegrass spread from Bill Monroe
Hank Williams was the Hillbilly Shakespeare
Johnny Cash, Elvis, Patsy are no more
With Ken Burns country music theyíre still here

Sons and Daughters of America glowed
And the Circle was unbroken we hear
Now, Hank didnít get above his raisiní
But if young Hank done it this way ainít clear

It made folks around the world join voices and sing along
